VCP new 2023 Master Plan envisions 13 projects in the next 5 years
IMBA Feasibility Study validates our Pathways Master Plan
The International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) recommends 70 miles of singletrack sidewalks, based on the trail priorities outlined
in our VCP Master Plan.
Community feedback set priorities for trail projects
Via in-person meetings with City Councils, Valley County Commission, chambers of commerce, stakeholder groups and online surveys in 2020-2021, we set priorities for trail development valley-wide.
A walking/biking trail from Rogers Lane to the Payette Middle School is a high-priority to create a Safe Route to School and a commuter route into McCall.
The Donnelly Flyway is a pedestrian trail that would run from ID 55 over to the Donnelly Beach on Lake Cascade via a scenic trail next to the Donnelly Airfield. This project is seen as a high priority by local residents.
Connecting from McCall to New Meadows and the Weiser River Trail is a high priority in the northern end of the valley.
Extending the Crown Point Trail from Vista Point out to Sugarloaf Boat Launch and Campground is a high priority for Cascasde residents.
NPS to lead community trail-planning process
Valley County Pathways, alongside area trails partners, is excited to participate in an integrated nonmotorized regional master planning effort, facilitated by world-class trail experts with the National Parks Service’s Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program (RTCA).
The RTCA process will integrate all trail-planning in our area into a single space. It’s bringing more than 10-12 potential trail partners to the table, allowing us to build relationships and improve collaboration, potentially leading to more funding opportunities and a better product in the long-term. We look forward to working with our regional partners to realize a world-class recreational ecosystem.
